Fathom summer intern Richa Shah shares her visual must-eat list of Indian street foods.
INDIA – My annual trip to India consists of catching up with family, sweating a little too much, and eating lots of good food. Street food is by far my favorite, basically a class unto itself, and, as a vegetarian, it's particularly awesome. I rounded-up a list of my favorites.
A street corner specialty roasted and topped with a delicious mix of Indian spices and lemon.
For a quick, street-side lunch, spicy vegetable curry is served with a soft bread roll.
The best way to cool off? With flavorful shaved ice.
A spicy and savory snack of puffed rice, veggies, and tamarind found on every street corner.
Grab a cup to start your morning off right. Getting another later in the day wouldn't be so bad either...
These warm cream-of-rice pancakes paired with a cup of masala chai make for a great breakfast.
An Indian classic of vegetables and lentils packed and fried in a triangular pocket.
A deep-fried Indian delicacy of flour and saffron that gets people hooked on the very first bite.
When the season is right, these are perfectly sweet and juicy.
Cool, vitamin-packed refreshments.
Take a few minutes out of your day for this one: a hollow puri filled with chutney, chaat masala (a mixture of indian spices), potatoes, chickpeas, chili, and a mixture of flavored water.
Yell "kama masala" if you can't feel your lips after you've eaten a few.
A potato fritter served with both sweet and spicy chutney.
This paper-thin snack can be eaten plain or spiced with tomatoes, cilantro, onions, lemon, and chili powder.
